None Of Us Would Want To Have Our Hearts Photographed

J. R. Miller, “When the Song Begins” 1905

“Having loved His own who were in the world–He loved them unto the end!” John 13:1

None of us would want to have our hearts photographed, and the picture held up before the eyes of our neighbors! We would not want even our best friends to see a full transcript of our secret life–what goes on within us:
the jealousies,
the envyings,
the bitter feelings,
the impure thoughts,
the meannesses,
the selfishnesses,
the suspicions,
the doubts and fears!

Yet Christ sees all this unworthy inner life–He knows the worst that is in us–and loves us still! We do not need to hide our weaknesses from Him. He never withdraws His love. We may trust Him absolutely and forever!
